Use decorative aluminum sheets from Home Depot to make your own "Moroccan style" lanterns. Cut, sand edges so they don't scratch, use wire to hold them together. Use mat spray paint in any color you like to finish off the lanterns. This idea is genius!
Candles in glass boxes - perfect combination of cozy and contemporary. Using flameless/electric candles for this would be a good idea to not have to worry about melting wax oozing into the bottom of the glass box and onto the other decorative objects
